GoPro Cam: Adventuring off piste
January 23, 2012 § Leave a comment
The other day even if the weather wasn’t at its best (hardcore rain blizzard + snow) I asked my friend Alex to join me skiing on the Horneggli (Schoneried-Switzerland). The whole day turned out to be an adventure since we decided (well Alex decided, I was reluctant at first but then decided I had nothing to loose) to go off piste: at first we were stuck in a mountain of powder snow, then on the next track ended up dodging pine trees and ending up in a river (yes a river in motion). So apart risking my life and ending up frozen till next spring we had a great time! Thankfully Alex is a great skier and knows how to lead the way, if it was for me I would still be in the forest crying.
My friend lent me his GoPro Camera, which was perfect for yesterdays wet conditions since its waterproof. I have to say its a great gadget for all sport-people out there. You can judge for your self looking at the following photos, I’m personally really impressed, and find the fish-eye view really fun. Needless to say I wish I could have taken more photos, but I really had to concentrate of flying around. Oh, almost forgot, I did fall face first in a 1 meter 30cm powder snow! Fun!
